Staff development and implementation of RTI have focused almost exclusively on the elementary level or have extended the elementary approach to secondary settings. Although well intentioned, the result has been too few middle and high school RTI implementations. This introductory workshop assumes the participant is at the beginning stages of secondary implementation and thus will provide illustrations of the needed skill sets, resources to find them, and guidance in structuring a secondary multitier model. The workshop will include training on a set of four structured self-studies to support implementation.
